Region 2 Leadership Development Conference 2011 Hosted by Los Ingenieros & SHPE
The Regional Leadership Development Conference (RLDC) is an annual conference staged by SHPE to help college students develop and improve their pre-college outreach programs and improve the infrastructure of their SHPE student chapters. Participants will benefit from workshops that will focus not only on promoting individual leadership but also the leadership of SHPE chapters as a whole and how to work together as a team. In addition, team competitions will help members devise creative solutions to solve current SHPE chapter issues. Students will complete a team project that will allow them to develop the skills necessary to effectively run and lead a fruitful SHPE chapter. The tools gained at this conference will help SHPE leaders develop skills to strengthen the future of their chapters.
The Leader Within
This year’s 2011 RLDC theme is “The Leader Within”. Through this theme we intend to illustrate how important it is to be a real leader, often without a title, who takes initiative and assumes responsibility for the whole group and the organization’s goals. We want participating students to learn that, just because one does not hold a particular title, this does not diminish their capacity to achieve SHPE’s mission.
